Btw, did you want an origami-ish one or a micro-sized cutout version of one?

author
the poodleo (author)pmet2011-08-01

well, it would be hard to make an origami versoin, but if you can figure it out, it would be really cool.

The Tomahawk is similar in layout to the Hawkeye. You are welcome to develop off of it should you choose to. :)

Thanks! I'll make sure to visit the Tomohawk instructable if I work on a micro version of the Hawkeye.

I'm working on that right now. Unfortunately, there are many steps so it might take awhile :(

This is surely the best paper glider I've ever seen! Congratulations!

Many thanks! I'm working on a couple other gliders with a similar construction, but if you have any particular planes you want to see "paper-fied", let me know!
